Ryanair has called for limits on drinking at airports after police removed two passengers in fancy dress from a flight at Stansted this morning.

The airline stopped the men, who were reportedly dressed as Tinkerbell and Bob the Builder, from getting on their flight to Krakow in Poland.

Bosses said they wouldn't tolerate 'unruly or disruptive' behaviour.

"This is exactly why we are calling for significant changes to prohibit the sale of alcohol at airports, such as a two-drink limit per passenger and no alcohol sales before 10am.

"It's incumbent on the airports to introduce these preventative measures to curb excessive drinking and the problems it creates, rather than allowing passengers to drink to excess before their flights."

Essex Police confirmed they "provided assistance" at Stansted Airport just before 10am.

"Two men had become disruptive on a plane. They were cooperative on being asked to leave the aircraft. They scheduled a later flight to their destination."

Meanwhile, other passengers on the flight took to social media to comment on the situation.

On Twitter, Dan May said that one armed officer had "adjusted the man's wings" before adding that "Bob the Builder has been exceptionally well behaved".
